Awesome trail... not terribly well marked as you approach the ridge line so you have to pay attention to where you are going. Awesome views on both sides of the Eastern Continental Divide and a sign to denote when you cross that line. Not much traffic on this section of the AT!

Great trail with some terrific views. Not an easy trail. Filled with climbs and technical single track. Lots of rock ledges to cross at the top.

This is one of my favorite sections of the AT around Roanoke. I hiked nobo. It is a steep start then goes along the ridge before descending. Awesome views if the leaves are off. I saw signs of bear activity.
